The ASSC hosted its first post-Covid Regional Get-Together Events on Wednesday 8th June 2022 at Inveraray Castle, hosted by the Duke of Argyll.
The regional event was a partnership project between the ASSC and Argyll & the Isles Tourism Co-operative.
ASSC Chief Executive, Fiona Campbell, said: “Following on from our excellent events in the South of Scotland and Moray Speyside in 2019, the ASSC is delighted to bring our latest regional event to Argyll.
“Self-catering in Scotland generates over £867million a year for our economy, a large part of which occurs in the Argyll and the Isles.
“The discussions had at this event will shape the direction of our vital industry and will therefore have a significant impact on Scottish tourism as a whole as we recover from the pandemic.”
The Scottish Government has introduced a licensing regime for short-term lets in Scotland. Anyone looking to operate a short-term let for the first time from 1 October 2022 will need a licence before they do so. Those who are already operating short-term lets before 1 October 2022 must apply for a licence by 1 April 2023 if they wish to continue doing so. It will be an offence punishable by a fine of up to £5,000 for short-term lets granted without a licence. In addition, the planning laws on short-term letting introduce a new power for local authorities to designate the whole or any part of their area as a Planning Control Area.
Fiona Campbell, Chief Executive of Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers and Joanna Millar, Legal Director with Gilson Gray LLP will outline you what you need to know about the new regulations and give you an opportunity to ask any questions that people have.
For anyone that offers short-term letting, these events are ‘must attend’ events.
